Commander can run an SSH Agent service for establishing remote connections.
ssh-agentcommand is used to load up all of the SSH keys in the vault and start an SSH Agent service. SSH connections can be seamlessly established directly using the Keeper Commander SSH Agent without having to store keys on the local filesystem. SSH connections can then be established using any standard terminal.
The SSH agent service scans all records in the Keeper Vault based on different criteria such as:
- A record type "SSH Key" or "Server" with a private key and optional password/passphrase
- Any record with a single SSH key file attachment
Detail: Starts a local SSH Agent process on the local computer using keys from the vault.
start: Starts the SSH Agent service and loads up all keys
stop: Stops the SSH Agent service
info: Displays SSH Agent status
log: Displays connection log history
Starting the SSH Agent Service from the Commander CLI
Directly starting the SSH Agent without the shell:
